If you live or work in Cordova, or if you plan to head out there today to do some Christmas shopping at Wolfchase Galleria, be sure to stop by Jim N’ Nick’s Barbecue. Jim N’ Nick’s will be donating half of today’s total sales to the Make-A-Wish Foundation (up to $5,000). The restaurant will be teaming with Cordova High School to help grant the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition.
You can even check out their menu online and pick out what you want before you head over there. I’ve never been to Jim N’ Nick’s, but I’ve read that the cheese biscuits, homemade pies and of course the BBQ itself are among the favorites.
Remember, this is happening today (Tuesday, December 12) only, so be sure to get by there today if you want to participate. C’mon, you gotta eat, don’t ya?
If you go out there, eat some BBQ for me, because I won’t be able to make it to Cordova today – it’s the weekly trivia night downtown at the Saucer. By the way, congrats to my team The Rapscallions on their first-place victory last Tuesday! The $50 gift certificate we won brings our total stash to, well, $50, since the team just had a party on December 1 where we spent all our gift certificates. Let’s win five more times in a row and we’ll be in good shape to have another big party by mid-January!
That’s it for now… I actually have an additional post about downtown’s best burgers that is ready to go, but I want to leave the Make-A-Wish info at the top of my blog through the afternoon at least. So, look for the burger post late afternoon or early evening.
